Wanna take a wager on carb or at least fuel related.

You are going to make me go out there and swap that puppy when I'm supposed to be sharpening chain for tomorrow aren't you?
Nope - I can't make you do anything that you don't ALREADY WANT TO DO.
Verdict is in, it's the carb. Hope I get a few more minutes to play with the sick carb tonight. Then I can take both 460's with me in the morning for some field action.
(I hear you laughing Jags..... )
Had a little time to clean out that carb extra-thorough like. Low speed passages were definitely restricted. The short story is both saws are up and running and going out to play in the morning.
My cutting buddy and I ran both 460's this morning and both saws ran flawlessly. The difference between the aftermarket unit and the OEM one is not immediately perceptible to me anyways. Both saws seem to have similar power (running 20" ES wide-nose bars with 33RSC72 chains on them, fresh filed) and vibration levels are tough to distinguish between. The OEM 460 is noticeably louder IMO, most likely due to the very un-restricted OEM dual-port muffler on there. We ran 2 tanks through each saw and called it a day.
Pictures of the aftermath will be posted in the Wood Shed.
Oh yeah, I picked up a saw-test log today too. I will probably video both 460's for comparison at some point. (hopefully soon)
Just an old timers intuition.
Did you get that log set up and do any test runs yet??
Been busy with the holiday but it's on the "to do" list. Soon....
